‘Kerry Hudson invites us to really understand the complexities of being born working class in Britain. Buy it, read it, tell everyone about it’ – JACK MONROE
‘One of the most important books of the year’ – THE GUARDIAN
Kerry Hudson is proudly working class but she was never proudly poor. The poverty she grew up in was all-encompassing, grinding and often dehumanising. Always on the move with her single mother, Kerry attended nine primary schools and five secondaries, living in B&Bs and council flats.
Lowborn is Kerry’s exploration of where she came from. She revisits the towns she grew up in to try to discover what being poor really means in Britain today and whether anything has changed.
‘A story of one of the poor, working-class families who make up most of the UK yet never get a voice… I cannot imagine a more important or beautifully written book in 2019’ – CHRISTIE WATSON, author of The Language of Kindness
